My specialities include anxiety, depression , grief/loss, trauma, life transitions, stress management, burnout, and relationships.
Feeling stuck, emotionally overwhelmed, or struggling in your relationships? Are you suffering from self-doubt and thoughts of never being “good enough?" Is anxiety preventing you from pursuing the things that matter? As a therapist, I aim to help you gain insight into your emotional experience, build effective coping skills, and work through deep-rooted patterns to pursue a life of healing and fulfillment. My approach is evidence-based and culturally sensitive; I value the spectrum of human diversity and am attentive to social justice issues as well as the systemic factors that can impact one's sense of self and well-being.

I have over 20 years experience working with adults struggling with relationship difficulties, depression , anxiety, and low self-esteem.
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in healing relationships. You may be feeling emotionally disconnected from your loved one right now and wondering "what's happening to us", "we used to spend more time together", "we used to talk more, laugh more". This is a normal feeling --- often times because of life changes (kids, career, relocation, family deaths) your relationship takes a back seat. Over the years, you evolve as an individual, you are not the same person you were when you entered into the relationship.

There are many reasons why people reach out for support and guidance from a professionally trained therapist. Though this step isn't always the easiest, it is often one of the best decisions a person can make as it is a huge act in self-care and taking charge of ones life. Finding the right match with your therapist is one of the most important elements of therapy and I will do my very best to help ensure that you are connected with other therapists who can help if I am not the right fit for you.

Welcome to my practice. It is very common to experience distressing emotions at various points in our lives. When this happens, we often engage in unhelpful patterns of behavior and thought that can maintain and exacerbate the problem. This leads many of us to feel stuck and even hopeless.

I specialize in the treatment of substance abuse/addiction, anxiety/ depression , low self-esteem, and those struggling with intimacy and interpersonal connection.
As a psychotherapist with over 10 years of counseling experience in the Bay Area I have come to appreciate the importance of humor and honesty in developing a therapeutic relationship that encourages positive life changes. I work hard to develop a comfortable and safe space for my clients to identify and address barriers to progress in their personal and professional lives. When we are honest with ourselves, I think we so often find that our most ardent critic and obstacle to living a fulfilling and happy life is ourselves.

Growing up does not have to be unnecessarily painful or lonely. I help children, adolescents and young adults navigate developmental transitions with creativity and purpose. I also provide parents with education, skills and support to augment treatment. Young people often need guidance to explore their feelings, discover their unique strengths, and find meaning in their lives as they transition into adulthood. Challenges like family conflict, school problems, sexual confusion, depression , identity development, substance abuse, anxiety and stress can be greatly alleviated through the attentive support of a caring, unbiased professional.

Living in the Bay Area is both exhilarating and challenging. With the pressures and responsibilities of time, work, and family, you may encounter challenges to find the balance and much needed support for your emotional wellbeing.

Friends and family are usually well meaning and can provide support, but there may be times when it is appropriate to consult a professional who can focus on YOUR needs and find solutions to the challenges you encounter.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
